The constitution of the NSW CFA provides that there shall be a Management Committee comprised of twelve members.
Function of the Management Committee
The Management Committee has the entire control and management of the affairs of the NSW CFA and has the power to perform all such acts and do all such things as appear to the Management Committee to be necessary or desirable for the proper management of the affairs of the NSW CFA. It may exercise all functions except those that are required by the Rules to be exercised by a general meeting of the members of the NSW CFA.
Election of Management Committee Members
Nominations are called to fill the four vacancies on the Management Committee each year. All financial members of the NSW CFA are eligible to nominate to fill a vacancy. Nominees submit a profile which is circulated to ALL financial members of the NSW CFA, together with a ballot paper.
The NSW CFA believes that this democratic election process is the only way to ensure that each financial member is able to have a voice in who will serve on the Management Committee for the ensuing three years, thus ensuring stability of direction, aims and ideals.
The Executive Committee comprises the President, Senior Vice President and Treasurer which, subject to the control, direction and ratification of the Management Committee, shall be responsible for the Management of the urgent affairs of the NSW CFA between meetings of the Management Committee.
Members of the Management Committee
The Management Committee is comprised of twelve members, each member being elected for a three year term at the conclusion of which they may offer themselves for re-election. Four members of the Management Committee retire each year at the conclusion of their three year elected term.
Meetings of the Management Committee
The Management Committee meets on the second Tuesday of every month. These meetings normally run from 7.00pm until 10.00pm but often extend beyond these hours with special meetings being called on a regular basis to deal with specific items or events. Sub Committees meet whenever the need arises.
Within the framework of the Management Committee are several Sub Committees. These Sub Committees have the power to co-opt from amongst the general membership. The Sub Committees meet independently of the Management Committee and all decisions of the various Sub Committees are presented to the Management Committee for ratification.
